Important New update: anti-spam system + Google +1 Widget

Post by The Godfather on July 25th 2011, 11:48 am

First topic message reminder :

Important Announcement
New update: anti-spam system + Google +1 Widget


Hello,

In response to your growing demand, and to provide you with secure forums incorporating all the latest technical progress, Forumotion and his team are proud to announce you the establishment of two new features that will undoubtedly optimize security and referencing of your forums. :wouhou:




A new anti-spammers system: This new system of protection against spammers is in addition to others already in place on your forums to ensure the best possible protection for your forum. Wink
Enabling this new option is in your admin panel>> General>> Security>> Security Administration >> Prohibit registered members for less than a week to post external links and emails.



It uses a security protocol over the entire board that checks in real time the content of all posts, comments and private messages of new members with less than a week on your forum and prohibited from posting external links or emails.

So spammers who register on your forums to advertise their sites will find no more interest in wasting time on your site. Mr. Green

Of course, this limitation does not apply to the forum admins and moderators.




A new social widget "like", "tweet" and Google +1 : can be used on the portal or on every page of your forum, this new widget can be added to other widgets in order to provide access to the best of sharing content on the web. Wink



The establishment of this new widget is done via your admin panel>> modules>> Portal management (or: Forum widgets management)>> personal Widgets >> share.

For forums that already have a substantial number of personal widgets, the new social widget will not appear automatically. in this case the addition of the new widget "like", "tweet" and Google +1 should be done manually by the administrator using the steps below:

  1. access the admin panel>> modules>> Portal management (or: Forum widgets management)>> personal Widgets

  2. click on "create a widget"

  3. Widget name + table type + Widget title: as desired

  4. Widget Source: put the following code and save:
    Code:
    <div align="center" id="FM_widget_share"></div>

  5. place the new widget where you want





Another small minor improvement was made by this update for private messages title.

Indeed, in the same way that you can not post a topic without a title, you can no more send an PM without a title. It is a rule that applies on the forum in order to maintain clarity and consistency of what is exchanged.




We hope that this improvement will bring you full satisfaction. I love you

A ForuMotion Important Announcement

So by saying external links, do you mean my site itself or Forumotion completely. Because I'm as equally concerned as people spamming links to other Forumotion sites, I've had it happen before.

Important I don't want the social bookmark available

How do I delete that? This is a private forum and I don't want anything shared on a social networking page of any kind.

Post by abdatheoriginal on August 4th 2011, 7:07 am

Um, really, I had the Google plus 1 already scripted on my portal page within a widget.

Last checked the first day I got 73 hits on it. Was thinking I did pretty good, you know?

Then, today, I went back and it was gone!

I checked, and the script was there. But it wasn't showing on the portal page.

So I created another widget for my index page. Works no problem.

Rechecked and re entered the same code that WAS working and, still, not working now.

So, is this something you guys did? I found this link after some effort to find out the problem in this help forum.

I'd prefer to have my own stuff and not a shared widget with you guys but, if that's the only way I can have it, I'll take that. Right now I *am* using one of yours as well, but, really, I'd rather not.

But I want to know why. Why do I have to use yours?

Another preference is that I don't want to have tweet and all that other stuff: To me it distracts from the one thing I want paid attention: The Google plus one button. Most people like me see that tweet stuff an the rest of it all over the place and have become conditioned to it: I no longer see it. But when it is alone and self standing, it gets more attention. At least, that's they way I want to run my forum: And I do pay for my rights to have it copy write free among other things.

I wold like to understand this better. Some help please?

Thank you.

Very good. Thnx. You should add on to it so where people can't post just one worded posts. Because that is a huge problem in most sites and My site. Or a off topic thing lol. If it's possible haha.

hello,

for information, in addition to antispam measures we already did yesterday (a new captcha for our forums), please note that in order to strengthen the security of your forums, we made this afternoon a permissions change for "Reply to a message" and "Open a topic" that were passed automatically to "Members". This to counter the spam wave Wink

This is absolutely not a bug but a security measure we have decided and that adds to the already announced new CAPTCHA while waiting for our research and development team implementing a more effective anti-spam system. :wouhou:

Of course, if an admin does not agree with this permissions change he can, at his own risk, manually restore the permissions to its guests. Confused

However, we strongly recommend you not to give your guests the ability to post in your forums, because it opens the doors of your forum to unknown. Therefore, no one can prevent them from polluting it ... affraid

thank you king

About social widget "like", "tweet" and Google +1,
How i can remove the "flags" with the counters (on top of the buttons) with the numbers of likes and tweets?
You can provide the code without the counters?
Thanks!

Anti-spam - fantastic! Good work!

We do both automatically as quickly as we can when anyone registers anyhow - this gives us time, and we 'know' that a new member isn't emailing members as quickly as they can before we can stop them.

And, if I understand, they still can email admin - right?

Thanks for telling us this. I have a suggestion too for the anti spam system. You know how on some settings, you can turn the settings off for particular people and leave the settings on for others. Could you do that for the anti spam system settings. And maybe if we feel that somone is spamming too much, we could disable them from posting links and pictures forever.
